The Disconnect take on the A-Z challenge!

April 21, 2017 |



Brit post/melodic-hardcore band The Disconnect are gearing up for the release of new single Holes on April 24th. We asked the band to take on our A-Z challenge!

A song that made you want to make music?

There wasn’t a particular song as such, my school friends were starting a band and they needed a bassist, that’s where it all started for me! But around that time I was well into The Offspring and Nirvana so…those?

Best rider you've ever had?

Nothing too crazy, a case of beer we didn’t know we were getting until we got to the venue!

Craziest moment you've experienced in the band?

We were staying at a hotel and Sammy fell asleep so we put basically everything that wasn’t fixed to the floor on her, including a chair that Liam sat on and dabbed. Made for a decent photo.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

They’re all pretty deep, but if I had to choose it’d probably be “My ears bleed from the silence, your lips stone cold and quiet as I beg for your guidance” for personal reasons.

Easiest song you wrote?

They’re all pretty straight forward to play, but I think the one that came together the quickest was Home.

Favourite song in your set?

Got to be the one we’ve recently done a video for, Holes. It’s one of the angrier ones and just feels powerful when we play it.

Guest you'd most like to feature on your record?

Loz Taylor from While She Sleeps just for those sing-along parts they do so well.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Writing about feelsies and then realising you have to show everyone.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Matty really likes the 80’s. He’s really good at liking stuff everyone else hates/tries to forget about.

Jokes you have in the band?


Key to writing a song?

I’d say think about feeling then structure, then melody.

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

At the moment its only 40 miles or so, but the tours coming up later in the year will push that figure up a fair bit.
